Tarrying With The Negative
40" x 26"

Artist Statement: Lacking strength, Beauty hates the understanding for asking of her what it cannot do. But the life of spirit is not the life that shrinks from death and keeps itself untouched by devastation, but rather the life that endures it and maintains itself in it. It wins truth only when, in utter dismemberment, it finds itself. This tarrying with the negative is the magical power that converts it into being.
